Being sick this week, I totally spaced out getting a headband for my daughter to wear to perform in the church choir this weekend for Easter.  With a face like this, how could you NOT make her look her best?
(that's your teaser pic)

Then, inspiration hit, and I made one!

This isn't really what I would consider a beginner project though, so make sure to set aside plenty of time, and have supervision while you use the scissors.

First, get some apples at the store, and cut the tags off the bags.
  like this!

At this point, you'll probably need a break.  Make a snack!


Tie the headpiece securely around the head of whoever will wear it.  This is my model, Sophia.


You can use the contrasting colors as accents, and tie it on in a variety of ways!

Look at how shiny it is in the light!

Even like a little veiled hat! 


This is one of my favorite ways, cause it looks like a red poppy flower!


She was so excited that she couldn't stop looking at it!


Thanks for checking it out!  Please DO NOT copy this to market it in your shops, as it is my original idea.
C & C Welcome!

(P.S. April Fools!) Smiley

Thanks!  She really can't sing on key, so hopefully her beauty will balance out her act.
